    It's so unorganised. I didn't get my student finance until November because they 'forgot' to tell SFE that I had enrolled and I was attending. I had an exam in January and I was told the night before the exam what room I was in after multiple phone calls and emails for a month beforehand. I've got a seen exam in a month and we've not even been told the question yet, and they're ignoring all of our emails.

    The accommodation is shambles and once you're there they couldn't give a hoot, they charge you £10 if you leave your keys in your room.

    I'm an organised person and it's added a lot of stress to my uni experience and in all honesty it's ruined it for me and I cannot wait to transfer.

    My timetable was:
    Monday: 11-1 and 3-5
    Tuesday: 9-11 and 1-3

    So 2 X 2h lectures 2 X a week :P

    Just one final thing if you don't mind, are the lectures based on the Stratford campus or docklands? Or a mixture of both? Thanks 😊
